Batting a thousand. November 29, 2011

Please forgive us here at Poor Richard’s Almanac for tooting our own horn, but we figured that only our fellow bloggers would understand our excitement at achieving a new all-time-high viewer record. This past Thanksgiving, our blog had 950 views, shattering our previous record of 786. Our dream is to get 1,000 visitors a day, and while we’ve yet to achieve that, 950 comes pretty darn close.

Mind you, we have no clue how 950 views rates in the blogging world. Maybe everybody else routinely gets 10,000 views a day. But for us, it’s definitely a high point. Especially since our blog has no photos, no ads, no nothin’, and we don’t tweet, have a Facebook page, or do anything else to promote it. It’s just the three of us, our brains, and our keyboards.

We’re so thrilled to have reached this point! And we thank each and every one of you who’s taken the time to come to Poor Richard’s Almanac and actually read a post, photo-less as it is. We hope you enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed writing.

Yay, congrats! I have to say, while occasionally I wish there were photos (to break up a long post), overall it’s refreshing. So many blogs are overloaded with photos. I’m glad you do things your own way!

Bless you, and readers like you, Jennie! We’ll admit, we also wish there were photos (or original watercolors, or collages, or calligraphy, or something) to break up our long posts. But, being pretty awful photographers, watercolorists, etc., we save those efforts for our own amusement and stick to what we’re good at on the blog. Too bad we don’t have a fourth contributor with visual and technical talents!
